My PC reboots automatically, every time appr. 5-10 minutes after I normally boot my PC.

I already checked some threads here. Advise was to check the event log. It doesn't give any problems at the time of the auto-reboot, but a system error at the time I booted the computer after:
Foutcode; 0000009c, parameter1: 00000004, parameter2: 8054d5f0, parameter3: b2000010, parameter4: 00010c0f.

Foutcode means something like error-code (Dutch)

any other advice?

This sort of error is usually very difficult to troubleshoot. It's also an error reported by your CPU to Windows - so Windows usually won't log any information about it. Here's a link to a description: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x9c
Most causes are overheating, failed hardware, or overclocking.

I would stop any overclocking until the problem is resolved.
I would clean out the inside of the case and ensure that all the fans are working correctly.
I would disconnect any non-essential hardware to see if that helps to clear up the problem.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Hi andnino,

I've been a victim of "restarting/rebooting" countless of times, not all on the same time.

some were caused by RAM [dirty socket]
some were caused by faulty fan [i replaced it and it worked]
some were caused by heatsink clogged with dirt [cleaned it and it worked]
some were caused by old hardware [very old keyboard and old mouse]

so, what sir usasma said is true; most rebooting are caused by faulty hardware [and not updated]. Good luck with your problem, and i hope you resolve it before your OS gets corrupted by constant rebooting
Beneath wings of darkness, wings of death, I dwell in shadows,
Here I have found a kingdom, here I have found a princess; the princess of darkness.
She's the only one I fear, my princess wrapped in shadows, my princess beloved.

Giving it some air, and removing some turned off hardware helped. Thank you :thumbsup:

I do not think that will happen unless you think it will cure itself. you need to not restart that thing again and start picking pieces apart and cleaning them and hope you get lucky because it can be anything. STOP starting it and rip it apart. unplug everything and clean everything. It can be faulty power plug to your motherboard? How old is the computer...??? Hopefully you have patience and its the first thing you shoot... CPU cooler may not be attached firmly and have dust. Try booting into the BIOS - CPU temperature, CPU running warm and the board is set
to shut down at a preset temperature? Unlikely unless you moved to a place where it is 55 degrees warmer. I agree though with originals that it is not anything anyone can answer... it literally can be 8 things that cause it. start with easiest POWER PLUG although unlikely. Clean her out! Usually it is heat issue one way or the other, but you can get lucky and it be a plug! or you can clean everything to find out its not hardware?

Ummm......

WTF are you talking about?

Try booting into the BIOS - CPU temperature, CPU running warm and the board is set
to shut down at a preset temperature?

How is that a question? Or was it some sort of instructions? I can't tell. How on earth is that supposed to be helpful?

I agree though with originals that it is not anything anyone can answer

Who is originals?

I thought that maybe you were just in a hurry when making that post, but I have looked through the rest of your posts, and most of them are completely incoherent also. I do not like to discourage participation from our members, but I have to ask you to stop trying to help. If Andnino had tried to follow your instructions, he would end up electrocuting himself, and totally muffing up his BIOS. So quit trying to help, and I won't ban your account. Understand? I will not allow our members to be given poor, half-baked advice that may cause them to destroy their computers. We pride ourselves on consistent, clear, and thorough advice, and we have a rock solid reputation for doing just that. In the interest of protecting our members, and our reputation, I will ban your account and your IP in a heartbeat.

I will be instructing the staff to clean up all of your posts that are non-contributory, inflammatory, or incoherent, in order to maintain the integrity of Bleeping Computer.

EDIT: Changed my mind. I am not going to even wait. Especially after I saw posts where you like to call our members names.
